Your Attitude Can Make Or Break You

Your Attitude Can Make Or Break You

I can choose to control my attitude 

Life is a funny thing we all start out in this world with the same amount of time. We all start out as kids dreaming of what our life will be when we grow up and then one day we wake up and we are adults living a life that we worked hard to build, trauma steps in and we lose our loved ones you get the picture. Or we are living a life we just let happen! I have learned in my fifty-four years on this planet that our attitude is number one in how we interact with others i.e., animals and humans.  Set clear boundaries with others and when they cross the boundaries I set for myself talk to the person and try to create peace. If the other person wants no peace I walk away and dust off my feet as the bible states enjoy this life GOD has given me. Why? Life is too short to cry over something we can’t change. We can only change ourselves not other people including our children, step children, parents, neighbors etc. We are called to be peace makers but when people take advantage of us it is time to say enough is enough and speak up.  Saying goodbye to people we have had in our life for thirty or more years is not easy but boy is it better than enduring the continued abuse or taking advantage of us. I treat people how I want to be treated and if I do not receive back what I put in I know I am not important to the person. So as I stated above I pray for the person and I remove myself from their life.

I love to garden, if I keep putting poison on my plants they will wither and die. The same goes for us, if we keep letting someone hurt us physically or emotionally in any way the poison will destroy our destiny and joy.  After the semi-truck accident I survived I lost friends of over thirty years, not my choice their choice. Why? They did not behave in a way a friend should behave and I had to walk away. Was I hurt yes but today I can say thank GOD I had the courage to end the long time relationship as I am closer to Jesus and I will be much more careful who I let into my life again as a friend.

Have you ever walked into a room with a person who is negative?

I swear you can feel the tension in the room and for me I just want out. I do not like being around negative people and I would much rather spend my time all alone in peace and quiet with Jesus Christ and the gifts he gave me my husband and animals than to spend time with a negative person. The negative person is not hating me they hate themselves and their energy is sucking energy out of me trying to help them. I pray for these people and I do my best to keep visits short. Why? Negative people destroy us positive people as they hate us.

Why do they hate us?

We are moving and dreaming and they are stuck. The next time you are with a negative person pray for them, try to have empathy and keep the session as short as possible. The other thing I do is bless them with whatever I can, food, help with a problem as the bible states we are to help one another, it takes Jesus Christ to be nice to a person who has intentionally hurt me. My flesh wants to get even return the pain, this is not what we are to do when we are children of Jesus Christ, we are to pray and give love to the hurting and lost as guess what? You may be the only light in this persons life. 


 

Think about your word as it is the only thing you have that is worth much today, treat others how you want to be treated

Do you need prayer?

Select the 700 club as they have prayer warriors ready to pray with you for free, I know as in my darkest hours I called for prayer many times I am very grateful to these people at the end of the phone line. If you are tired of being in the same place you have been forever ask JESUS CHRIST to come into your life and make him your Lord and Savior. JESUS will help you learn how to enjoy your life and stop negative behaviors for you. GOD is not santa but he is our heavenly father in heaven and he has counted every hair on our heads. GOD has a bigger plan for your life than you do.

Bible Verses

A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones PROVERBS 17:22

Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the mind and healing to the body. Proverbs 16:24

I will serve the Lord my GOD, and he will bless my bread and my water and take sickness away from me. EXODUS 23:25

I will reverently fear and worship the LORD and turn (entirely) away from evil.  It shall be health to my nerves and sinews, and marrow and moistening to my bones. Proverbs 3:7-8

I will have balance in my life because GODs word states that if we are not well-balanced we open a door for Satan to come in and devour us. 1 PETER 5:8

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

Hoof Abscess


rio6jan2013

The Donkey Whisperer Farm is officially six years old in 2013time has literally flown by so much has changed and yet so much remains the same.  Rio is now a full-grown Mammoth donkey as he turns seven years old in 2013.  Rocket Man turns nineteen and my horse Lily is eight years young. Read my post Donkeys and hoof abscess for more information.

The most frustrating and difficult issues I have had with our Mammoth donkey is hoof abscesses. It appears that Mammoth donkeys should live in the desert with no rain poor boy was born in Western Washington with too much rain.  Each of them get their feet picked out daily and their paddock has very little mud and yet the Mammoth donkey suffers from abscess, networking via the internet I have learned this is sadly the health issues associated with Mammoth donkeys.

Before I brought all three equine home I researched, networked and read every book I could get my hand on to create the dryest paddock to prevent hoof problems as I have lived in Western Washington most of my life.  I placed 3/4 clean gravel down on the hill between the two barns to avoid mud, thrush and abscesses.  Rio has had horrific abscesses and we are now laying pin chips down (no cedar) to help him.  I made the decision to shoe Rio’s front (absessing yearly) with Dr. Hills overseeing the process this last fall.  Rio’s custom-made Mammoth Donkey shoes are helping him get more exercise on the gravel as he is running and playing again, he is much more comfortable.

I place 3/4 clean gravel in between the two barns where they walk back and forth day after day to stop the mud.  Additionally I suggest laying pin chips down so they have a place to lay outside and it is soft and dry the only problem I have noted with pin chips is it needs to be replaced at least every other year or it will turn to mud.

Hoof abscesses in donkeys are not the same as the horse.  Why? 

Donkeys hoof anatomy is of a donkey not a horse. Donkeys are strong and will not show any pain until it is a serious medical matter.  Here is another post I wrote explaining the emergency kit and the hoof abscess.  The horse would be limping much faster than the donkey or mule with an abscess thus the seriousness and need for a vet immediately. Please call the vet for draining a hoof abscess do not leave this to the farrier.

What can you do for your donkey, horse or mule suffering from a hoof abscess?

Call the Vet hopefully you have a vet that has experience with donkeys.   Donkeys are not horses and thus their hooves do not behave the same as a horse.  Please only authorize your vet to find the abscess and drain it,never let the farrier do the vet’s job!  Your vet will cut out a very small hole for drainage releasing the pain and pressure almost instantly.  Never authorize the farrier to do this as this is a medical need not a farrier need.

Follow up maintenance is necessary the hole needs to be kept clean, pick the stuff out of feet every day, I suggest getting a spray bottle and using Beda dine solution with some water in a water bottle to spray the hole clean every day.  We use the solo spray bottle as it gets all the gunk out and keeps it clean, Soaking a cotton ball in beda dine solution and sticking it in the hole is necessary until the hole has grown out.   The hoof will not grow completely out for at least ten months to a year so keeping the hole clean from mud and gunk is a full-time job to say the least.

One of the best things we can do as an owner of donkeys, horses and mules is keep the hooves trimmed and make sure they are being trimmed correctly.  Select Pete Ramey to learn how to trim a donkey, trimming needs to be done at least every 6-7 weeks.  I highly recommend you the owner viewing this dvd and asking your farrier to review it.  Trimming equine is not a back yard hobby and it needs to be left to professionals in my opinion as incorrect trimming will cause abscesses and sand and grit to travel into the white line.  As the owner we must be picking the hoof out each and every day and making sure no thrush is growing in the hoof.  Diet of the equine is imperative to optimum health so test your hay, do not give grain and treats to the donkey just clean water and low sugar hay.  Orchard hay around the Pacific northwest is what we use and a slow feeder is also a good idea as long as it is covered to keep the rain out.

I am trying a new slow feeder out will follow-up with the results in my upcoming blogs.

Summary:

Diet, exercise, professional trimmer of hooves every 6-7 weeks, clean out hooves each and every day, clean dry padock, morton loose salt, white salt block, clean water, low sugar hay and no grazing in green grass for the easy keeper. Donkeys are always easy keepers. :)

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway! – John Wayne


Howdy,

Today is April 13, 2012 it has been two years since I got in the vehicle with my GOD mother and survived a semi truck smashing into the passenger door where I was sitting destroying my fragile body.  This has been the longest two years I can remember of my entire life.  Praise GOD my husband and I are stronger in our bond of marriage and I thank GOD in Jesus Christ name for his blessings, healing and favor.

I Have Learned, In Whatsoever State I am, To Be Content – Philippians 4:11  – YOUTUBE Sernity Prayer Video

I think I am finally getting this verse (Philippians 4:11) from the NIV bible I guess these things take time as I am just a human being doing the best I can to navigate life.  Nothing happens by accident; I am sure GOD always allows things to come into our life and leave our life as nothing stays the same. 

Life weaves in and out for all of us just like seasons come and go in nature.  The good news is I know GOD is in control of my life and I need not worry about a thing and I shall be content and live in the moment just like the animals do.

 GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
